It’s happening in Tooele county again. New home vs used? It happens every spring.
With the coming of a new season the age old home buying question of whether to buy a used house or one newly built that has never been lived in seems to be on a lot of minds.
There is no way to answer that question without knowing a lot more about the overall circumstances surrounding the question. So I won’t even try.
I can and will do a couple of things however.
- Give you Berna Sloans phone number.
- Post a number of blog posts we have published over the year that talks about buying new homes in Tooele County and the advantages of new construction.
I am giving you Bernas contact information because if you are looking to buy a home in Tooele, she is the one you want helping you. Berna has been doing this full time for almost 25 years, and is thought to be as knowledgeable about Real Estate in this area as anyone with or without a license. She can be reached @ 435-840-5029.
I’m not recommending her because she’s my wife, it’s because I know of no one else that has the combined track record of selling both new homes and previously owned houses in the valley.
Berna raised 5 kids sharing her expertise with buyers and sellers alike. No one has the successful track record of selling homes either new or used that Berna does.
Secondly, Berna and I have written extensively about real estate in Tooele Utah and among the hundreds of posts you can find on our blogs, are many offering tips for buying new construction. I have linked to a number of those and hope they help you frame the questions you need to ask before making the decision of whether NEW or USED is the answer!
Here are some articles we wrote. Hope you find them helpful!

What Others Say About New vs Used
Before I sign off I would like to link you up with some other articles that deal with the dilemma. These are articles written by respected industry professionals not affiliated with us or with the Tooele real estate market.
They are dealing solely with outlining the benefits or drawbacks associated with selecting a subdivision, finding a floor plan you like, picking a lot and ordering the construction of a new house, against finding a neighborhood you like, looking at the listings and making an offer on a used house.
See what you think of these.
When researching the advantages of disadvantages of buying new versus a pre- owned home, make sure you weigh your personal experience …
That should keep us all busy for awhile. Plenty to consider.
But… The thing I would like you to consider most of all as you decide what’s best for you and your family.
Who is going to help you?
I hope that you will consider Berna Sloan. She knows this business. I won’t say she is waiting for your call, but I will say “she will be glad you did”. So will you!
